The microwave oven is the first kitchen appliance from the company, and will be sold under the AmazonBasics line. Shipping begins November 14th — just in time for all the busy cooking and kitchen mayhem that the holidays bring.

Once you set up Alexa with certain skills, it can help you in many ways. Here are 10 unexpected ways you can use it.

The smart device will feature voice-activated presets, allowing you to order the appliance to heat up different types of food, like frozen vegetables or popcorn, and other cooking needs, like a one-minute heat-up. There’s also a built-in Alexa button on the device, which you can press if you don’t want to say “Alexa” or “microwave,” but rather speak the cook time or preset you prefer directly. You will need an Echo device nearby to make it work.

There’s also an integrated Dash replenishment service, which currently works for popcorn. Essentially, you pick your choice of popcorn on Amazon, and as you go through your supply, it automatically figures out you’re running low and will re-order a new batch automatically!
